Hotel Carlton Mill - Christchurch

A friend of recommended this hotel to stay at while I was visiting Christchurch last month.

This hotel is located beside Hagley Park, which is only a 1 minute walk from the hotel, and only a 15 minute walk away from the City's pop-up mall.

I stayed in their one-bedroom suites, which offers open plan living, dining and lounge area, and a single and a double bed. Very comfortable accommodation and friendly staff.

Single bed located in the open plan living, lounge, dining area.

Kitchen and couch located in the open plan living, lounge, dining area.


The bathroom
The hotel also has an on-site, fully licensed bar and restaurant called Strawberry Fare. I went there and ordered the egg benedict for breakfast. Very yummy!

Bookings are strongly recommended for Strawberry Fare, for more details click here.
